With new insight and technology making drugs incredibly potent, it is more important than ever to read labels and understand the consequences and side effects of certain drugs. This rings especially true with regards to nurses, who must administer drugs as part of their jobs. When they err, human injuries and lives could be the cost. In such a situation, it would be wise to contact an expert medical malpractice attorney at 617-787-3700.
A nursing home resident in Florida has died after receiving a dosage of his medication 20 times more potent than what he was accustomed to receiving. Early investigations suggest that the nurse who administered the medication made the fatal mistake, but there is also some indication that the nursing home is responsible insofar as they allegedly intentionally understaff the homes with nurses to increase their bottom line. As a result, nurses are not as able to give adequate attention to each patient that they see. Reports also indicate that the family of the deceased man has hired an attorney to pursue a medical malpractice claim.
